Russia’s Investigative Committee charges top Ukrainian military officials with ‘terrorism’ over drone attacks
Russia’s top investigative body has charged four of Ukraine’s top military officials with “terrorism” in connection with drone attacks on Russian territory and Russian-occupied Crimea.
According to a press release published on Tuesday, Russia’s Investigative Committee has brought charges in absentia of “committing terrorist acts” against:
- Ukrainian Military Intelligence Chief Kyrylo Budanov
- Ukrainian Air Force Commander Mykola Oleshchuk
- Ukrainian Navy Commander Oleksii Neizhpapa
- Commander of the 383rd separate regiment of remotely controlled aircraft Serhii Burdeniuk
“The investigation has gathered sufficient evidence of the involvement of Ukraine’s top military leadership in organizing and committing, in the period from April 2022 to September 2023, more than 100 air strikes using aircraft-type unmanned aerial vehicles on the territories of Moscow and the Moscow region, the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, the Rostov, Belgorod, and Bryansk regions, and a number of other regions of the Russian Federation,” the press release says.
The Investigative Committee also claims that the accused “involved their subordinate military personnel in committing the crimes.”
The Investigative Committee plans to add the aforementioned Ukrainian military officials to Russia’s wanted list in the near future.
